United States Patent 3,246,023 ESTER OF AN a-SULFOCARBQXYLIC AQID AND A POLYALKYLENEOXIDE GLYCOL ETHER Kwan-Ting Shen and Patrick M. Quinlan, St. Louis, Mo., assignors t0 Petrolite Corporation, Wilmington, Del., a corporation of Delaware N0 Drawing. Filed May 3, 1962, Ser. No. 192,092 11 Claims. (Cl. 260-400) This invention relates to esters of a-sulfo carboxylic acids and a polyalkylene oxide glycol mono ether. These esters may be expressed by the following formula or in .the case of the completely esterified ester by the formula where R is a hydrocarbon radical for example alkyl, alkylene, etc. such as -(I) an alkyl radical having at least 6 carbon atoms, such as 650 or more, advantageously at least carbon atoms, but preferably 14-16 carbon atoms or (2) an alkylene radical having at least one carbon atom, such as 1-50 or more, advantageously 2- 35, but preferably 4-10 carbons; A is a lower alkylene group; n is determined by the number of alkylene oxide units added, for example 1-100 or more, such as 1-50, advantageously 1-20, but preferably 1-10; R is a hydrocarbon group, for example alkyl, alkenyl, alkinyl, cycloalkyl, aryl, alkaryl, aral-kyl, etc.; and r is an integer, for example 1-3, such as 1-2, but preferably 1; M is hydrogen -or a salt moiety; or. represents the number of moles of sulfo acid esterified; and ,8 represents the moles of water removed on esterification.

The following are non-limiting examples of R: phenyl,

diphenyl, naphthyl', cycloalkyl, alkylphenyl, polyalkylphenyl, alkylnaphthyl, polyalkylnaphthyl, alkylcycloalkyl, polyalkylcycloalkyl, alkyldiphenyl, polyalkyldiphenyl, phenallcyl, alkylphenalkyl, polyalkylphenalkyl, etc.; alkyl or alkenyl, for example having from 1-30 or more carbon atoms (straight-chained or branched), but preferably 6-18 carbon atoms, etc.

(0A) is derived from any suitable oz, ,8 alkylene oxide, for example, alkylene oxides of the formula where R R R R are hydrogen or a substituted group, such as alkyl, cycloalkyl, aryl, etc., for example ethylene oxide,fpropylene oxide, butylene oxide, amylene oxide octylene oxide, styrene oxide, methylstyrene oxide, cyclohexene oxide (where R and R are joined to form a ring), etc.

Equivalents of alkylene oxides can also be employed, for example alkylene carbonates, i.e. ethylene carbonate, propylene carbonate, butylene carbonate, etc. In addition alkylene oxides of the glycide, methyl glycide, etc. type and their equivalents can also be employed.

(0A) denotes (1) homo units for example-(OEO )n, )11 y )n (ooHcHz)u etc., (2) block units,

etc. where a+b+c:n; (3) hetero units containing random mixtures of more than one oxide ('OEtOPr) (OPr-OBu) (OEt-OBu) wherein the ratio of each oxide to the other is for example 1-99 to 99-1; (4) hetero-homo units for example (EtO),,(EtO-PrO) (EtO) (PrO) (EtO-PrO) (EtOPrO) (BuO) etc.

In addition, derivatives of (OA) can be derived from an oxetane (e.g. oc'y alkylene oxides) for example those of the formula but '1 01-12 i orn where B and D are hydrogen or a substituted radical, for example alkyl, aryl, cycloalkyl, alkenyl, aralkyl, etc.

In addition, B and D can be substituted such as Where the oxetane is derived from pentaerythritol and derivatives thereof. Examples of such oxetanes can be found in the American Chemical Society Monogram The Pentaerythritols by Berlow et a1. (Reinhold 1958), chapter X. Preferred embodiments of such pentaerythritol-derived oxetanes include those of the formula C Hz CHzY CH2 where X and Y are halogen, cyano, hydroxy and alkoxy.

The R moiety which completes the carbon chain of the carboxylic acid from which the a-sulfo carboxylic acid is derived has the meaning described above. These acids may be of animal, vegetable or mineral origin.

Since the products of this invention may be block polymers containing blocks or segments of alkylene oxide units which are added sequentially, oxyalkylation is in essence a stepwise procedure. For the sake of simplicity of presentation, the invention will be illustrated by employing as a base oxyalkylatable compound R'OH and by employing only ethylene, propylene, and butylene oxides with the understanding that other hydrophobe oxides can be used in place of propylene and butylene oxides such as amylene oxide, octylene oxide, styrene oxide, oxetanes, etc. These are shown in the following table. 7

This will be illustrated as follows:

(45) R'(PrO) (EtO) (Pro-BuO) OH (47) R'(PrO),,(BuO) (PrO) OH etc.

Step IV involves the oxyalkylation of the products of Step 111. Step V involves the oxyalkylation of Step IV. Further oxyalkylations involve Steps VI-X or higher.

Although the hydroxy compounds described above are oxygen-containing compounds, corresponding compounds can be formed from thiophenols and mercaptans. In addition, sulfur analogues of the alkylene oxides can also be employed. Thus, aryl-SH or alkyl-SH can be oxyalkylated with alkylene oxide, alkylene sulfide, or mix- 4 tures of alkylene oxides and alkylene sulfide in a random or block-wise fashion. The following compounds are exemplary:

The above oxyalkylated hydroxy compounds and others within the scope of this invention are esterified in the conventional manner, for example, by heat alone, heat and reduced pressure, heat in combination with an azeotroping agent, etc., until the desired amount of water is removed so as to form an ester.

The letter R indicates'that the sulfo acid may be mono or polycarboxylic acid. For example, where the compound is a dicarboxylic acid it has the following formula:

03M S0311 When less than fully esterified it has the formula:

0 ll H H H R0(A0),.-00R000M M designates H or the cationicmoiety of sulfonate salt. The salts of the sulpho-carboxylic acid esters which may be produced 'by this invention are many and varied. In general, salts of most inorganic and organic bases may be prepared. Among the inorganic salts are the alkali metal and alkaline earth salts, such as the sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, etc. salts as well as the salts of heavy metals. Ammonium and substituted ammonium or organic nitrogenous base salts may also be prepared. Included within this class are, for example, the salts of alcohol amines, including monoethanolamine, diethanolamine, triethanolamine, propanolamines, butanolamines, pentanolamines, glycerolamines, dimethyl monoethanolamine, diethyl monoethanolamine, dibutyl monoethanolamine, diethanol ethyl amine, cyclohexyl ethanolamine, alkylol polyamines such as alkylol derivatives of ethylene diamine, mono-methyl mono-ethanolamine, diethyl monoethanolamine, l-amino-Z, 3-propanediol, 1, Z-diamino-propanol; alkylamines such as buty1amine, diethylamine, ethylene diamine, diethylene triamine, triethylene tetra-amine, mono-methyl ethylene diamine, monoethyl diethylene tetra-amine, hydrazine and substituted hydrazines, aromatic and heterocyclic bases and cyclic nitrogenous substances such as pyridine, quinaldine, piperidine, methylpyridine, imidazolines, and homologues and derivatives thereof, and, in general, primary, secondary and tertiary amines substituted or not with other radicals such as hydroxy, alkyl, aryl, cycloalkyl groups and the like; quarternary ammonium bases or hydroxides such as tetramethyl ammonium hydroxide, tetraethyl ammonium hydroxide, quarternary ammonium bases with dissimilar alkyl radicals such as methyltriethyl ammonium hydroxide, propyl-trimethyl ammonium hydroxide, mixtures of any two or more thereof, and the like. It will be understood that these organic nitrogenous bases may be employed in pure, impure or commercial form such as, for example, commercial triethanolamine which contains minor proportions of monoand di-ethanolamine. The tabulation of specific salts given hereinabove is by no means meant to be exhaustive, but

it affords to those skilled in the art more than an adequate exemplification of the practice of this invention.

In certain fields of utility other salts can also be employed. For example, calcium, barium, zinc, strontium, aluminum, chromium, nickel and other polyvalent metal salts which are soluble in hydrocarbons may be used as oil soluble detergents. They are useful, for example, in turbine oils and in lu'be oils of the type used in the crank cases of internal combustion engines. For this purpose they are ordinarily added to the oils in amounts of about 0.1% to about 5% by weight.

In addition to their utility as wetting agents and detergents certain salts may be employed for special purposes. For example, copper, cadmium and mercury salts may be applied as mildew-proofing agents, for example in cell-ulosic textiles. Amine and quaternary ammonium salts may be applied as moth proofing agents for Woolens.

Although various meanings have been assigned to the symbols in the above formulae, the best combinations thereof will depend on the particular application to which the composition is applied. For example, R and R can be selected so as to yield the desired oil or water solubility, or the type, amount and proportions of (A) can vary the solubility which has already been imparted by R and R. In certain systems it may be desirable to employ the composition as a free sulfonic acid while in others it may be desirable to employ it in the form of its salt. Therefore, specific composition variations will depend on the particular system in which it is employed.

It should also be understood that where a polyvalent cation is employed for M, for example as where M is calcium, the compound has the following structure These compounds may be conveniently expressed by having M= /2Ca.

The following examples are presented by way of illustration and not of limitation.

The examples presented in Table II are similarly prepared by esterirfying the oxyalkylated hydroxy compounds or sulfur analogues thereof with the a-sulfo acid. There fore, to save repetitive details they are presented in tabde (form. The salts are prepared in the conventional manner, with some heating if necessary, by mixing the corresponding acids and the desired bases.

The dioarboxylic sulfo acids of Table III are similarly prepared except that 2 moles of hydroxy compound are added for each mole of dicarboxylic acid.
